Stagmomantis carolina. Stagmomantis limbata males have a green stripe that borders each side of the wings and S. carolina does not.
Hi Edgard, great spotting! This is definately a male Carolina Mantis (native species to the US). Here is one that looks just like yours: http://bugguide.net/node/view/571728/bgi...Polyspilota aeruginosa (Madagascan Marbled Mantis) does not occur in North America. This would be a fantastic addition to the Marvelous Mantids of the North East mission: http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/1573...
This one is a praying mantis.
Lat: 39.44, Long: -74.61
